  • What do past graduates say about the program?

    At Yoga Education Institute, I not only became a certified yoga instructor, my entire yoga practice was transformed. Nancy Wile is a detailed, patient, and positive teacher, who helped bring out each of our voices, our individual personalities, and our essence. I was able to move from being very shy to feeling confident in myself and in my ability to teach yoga. With the warm and practical environment she creates, I was able to safely discover my own niche as a teacher. Her format of presenting the anatomy and physiology of yoga is accessible and easy to learn. I could not imagine having a more productive and precise teacher.
